This Sunday at St Andrew’s Brighton is the third Sunday after Pentecost, and this week we return to limited worship services on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Yesterday the Premier of Victoria surprised us with news that the number of people permitted at a church service would remain at 20 rather than increase to 50 as we had been expecting. We had not intended to offer services when the limit was only 20 because of the difficulty of ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity of attending, particularly those without internet connections who have to wait until they receive this Vicar’s News in the mail. Some people will inevitably miss out and may be left disappointed.
This 20 people limitation is likely to last until at least the Wednesday 15 July service. Accordingly we will ring those who are registered for our service next Sunday (28 June), in the order of booking, as we are now overbooked. Some may wish to transfer to the Wednesday service where there are still a few places available.
